The Real Thing-crd

George Strait

 E
Well I was on a bus coming back to us
 AE
from Atlanta in '53
And I picked up a rhythm and blues magazine layin'
 B
 underneath my seat
 E
And I found out the stuff they were playin' us
 AE
wasn't made from grits and bone
 B
And it takes more than the Crewcuts and Pat Boone
 E
to take me home
Chorus:
 EAE
I want the real thing give me the real thing 
Make it loud and make you proud
 B
of the songs they sing
 E
I Don't want you under my roof with your 86 proof
 AE
Watered down 'til it tastes like tea
You're gonna pull my string
 BE
make it the real thing for me 
Solo: E B E
 E
I remember old Elvis when he forgot
 AE
to remember to forget
And when young Johnny Cash hadn't seen this side of
 B
 big river yet
 E
And when sun was more than daylight shining on
 AE
 Memphis, Tennessee
 E
And Luther and Lewis and Perkins was pickin'
 BE
and playin' them songs for me
Chorus:
 EAE
I want the real thing give me the real thing 
Make it loud and make you proud
 B
of the songs they sing
 E
I Don't want you under my roof with your 86 proof
 AE
Watered down 'til it tastes like tea
You're gonna pull my string
 BE
make it the real thing for me 
Solo: E A E B E A E B E
Chorus:
 EAE
I want the real thing give me the real thing 
Make it loud and make you proud
 B
of the songs they sing
 E
I Don't want you under my roof with your 86 proof
 AE
Watered down 'til it tastes like tea
You're gonna pull my string
 BE
make it the real thing for me 
You're gonna pull my string
 BE
make it the real thing for me
